We just need some full backs and may be Carvallho to play defensive midfield to complete the set (Alexis Sanchez would be a bonus but we don't really need him).
Do you think Stones will be leaving? That would be embarrassing for Pep surely...

good point, well made! I forgot Stones who will also be staying as he has just been given Zabaleta's shirt number (5).

I am not sure about Delph and Fernando.

Gone already are:

Big Willy
Clichy
Zabaleta
Sagna
Jesus N

Probably going are;

Iheanacho
Nolito
Nasri
Bony
Hart
Mangala

So - as you'll now know, and as we agreed, the old thread is dead. Let us speak no more of transitional seasons, Wenger Out, bottle jobs or Liverpool.

It is a new dawn. And I for one, can't wait.

What are the odds on Liverpool to win it in October?

Well as long as we don't bottle it, like we did at the end of last season, beating Leicester 6-1 and Hull 7-1, I will be happy!

In the last two seasons;

Won the most.
Scored the most.
Conceded the fewest.
Lost the fewest.
Net spend of pocket change.

Natural born bottlers.

72 / 2 = 36.
This was done before the end of the season.
38 + 38 = 76 total games in 2 seasons.

**** me.

So to sum up Scampi's stupid little picture, extrapolated over 2 seasons, we are the champions, we are the best we are supreme gods of football.....and Man U have spent 153m and are the pits of some sort of trajectory.

Surely you're pleased to see that picture? You've displayed huge levels of consistency across the most of two seasons. If you can get it right when it matters, you might win the league.

Until then....Bottlers.

Obsessed much...?

It's quite ironic that due to Spurs rivalry with Arsenal, the Spurs fans are are trying to emulate the Arsenal fans with constant nonsensical mouthyness despite winning bugger all for years.

In other news, who the hell are Southampton going to sell their average players to now that they've allegedly reported Liverpool to the EPL for trying to tap up the dutch defender dude.
